In 2015, acclaimed Canadian novelist and head of the University of British Columbia's the creative writing program, Steven Galloway, was accused of sexual assault. Despite there being no evidence to support the allegations, Galloway was suspended and subsequently fired from UBC. The situation caused a dramatic rift in the CanLit community, likely irreparable. Galloway is now suing about two dozen people connected to the allegations against him. In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Jonathan Kay — journalist, former editor-in-chief of The Walrus, former editor and columnist at The National Post, and current Canadian editor at Quillette — about the case, the consequences, and the likely outcome.
